February is also the month of Board Elections. Three openings on the Board are coming open. Contact any Board member if you are interested. This year because of COVID-19 we are holding elections online. Secure links to the election web site will be sent out via email to all ECR members on Friday, February 5. You may cast your vote at any time up to Wednesday, February 24, when results will be tabulated and announced.

Pastor Saia

We were saddened to learn of the passing on September 26th, 2020 of St. Andrews UMC's Pastor, Reverend Saia Faasisila. Pastor Saia had served at the church since 2015. Our condolences go out to the Pastor's family and the St. Andrews congregation.

We look forward to meeting the new pastor, Rev. Saulisi Kanongata'a, when we are able to resume activities at the church.

COVID-19 Update (1/23)

California's pandemic has hit a crisis point, with a shelter-in-place order reinstated for Santa Clara County and most other Bay Area counties.

Two Covid-19 vaccines have been approved by the FDA for immediate/emergency distribution. However, it may be several months before vaccine doses can be made available to most club members.

County COVID-19 info

St. Andrews Church and the Billy DeFrank Center have still not reopened.

Once the Board feels comfortable recommending that the club resume dancing, we will send out a survey/poll to ECR members to ask what they would be comfortable doing and when.


WE'LL BE BACK!

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, and Advanced programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would love to welcome you to our club. Come to one of our monthly no experience required Fun Nights, or send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
